a 4"x4" and some 1"x5 1/2"s
He decided 3'x6' would be a good size and I agreed. That way we could surround it with wire mesh to keep the plethora of bunnies who like to chill in our yard out but I could still easily access everything from the perimeter.
The 4"x4" got cut in 4 equal lengths of 14"
and the 1"x5 1/2"s were cut so we had four pieces 3' long and 4 pieces 6" long
Then it was time to screw the boards into the 4"x4". The plan was that there would be a few inches of the 4"x4" sticking out so that we could sink it into the ground for extra stability.
Moving right along. Olive is overseeing the project. She is a master carpenter.
Here it is placed in the yard before the holes were dug for the 4"x4"s.
Dig, Dig, Dig and in it goes
and one more with my ominous shadow...
I'm so excited thinking about what to plant. Tomatoes for sure, cucumbers, zucchini maybe? This was a simple project even for us and we don't have the best of tools or building know how. Just pick a size and go to it!
I had some leftover dill from a recipe I'll share with you tomorrow and I mixed it up in some tuna salad for lunch. It was delicious! My little one wasn't convinced but I happily ate his sandwich too. Try it!
I'd love it if you'd follow me via GFC or linky followers!
